It's far from pocketable, but the P900's ludicrous 24-2,000mm-equivalent zoom range will make sure you get those bird, building, moon or sports shots.
If you're looking to spend less than $150 on a camera, Nikon has just two to offer US buyers, the ultracompact Coolpix L32 and S3700.
The new Coolpix P610, L840, S9900, S7000 and S6900 all offer big zoom lenses like their predecessors, but get a bit more shoot-and-share flexibility.
Want a point-and-shoot camera you can take down 30 meters without buying a special housing? Nikon has you covered.
Outside of some design quibbles, the Nikon Coolpix S9700 puts big zoom power and nice photo quality (snugly) in your pocket.
With easy-to-use controls, a nice tilting LCD, and pleasing photo quality, the affordable 34x zoom Nikon Coolpix L830 is a solid pick.
The Nikon Coolpix P600 isn't the quickest camera, but that might be a small price to pay for having such a long lens on a relatively compact, lightweight camera.
In the relative quiet before CES 2014, Samsung revs its prosumer mirrorless model and launches some new kit-lens options and alternatives.
Pricing not available
For those who value a long zoom lens, AA batteries, and saving a few bucks, the Nikon Coolpix L820 might be your point-and-shoot.
This follow-up to the S01 remains supersmall and lightweight, but gets a new sensor and larger touch screen.
